Tigers Make Final Cuts

The Tigers reduced their roster to 25 this morning by optioning infielder Danny Worth to Toledo and reassigning outfielder Andy Dirks and pitcher Adam Wilk to minor league camp this morning. These moves mean that pitchers Enrique Gonzalez and Brayan Villareal and outfielder Brennan Boesch will be heading north. Outfielder Casper Wells has also officially made the team, although that's been pretty obvious all spring.

Since Gonzalez needs to be added to the Tigers 40-man roster, somebody else will need to be dropped.  That will most likely be infielder Audy Ciriaco.  Ciriaco was once a promising teen-age prospect with good raw tools, but he has never hit at any level and is now 23-years old.
